A combination of weather, currency and political factors should result in another huge South American crop of corn and soybeans, further depressing grain and oilseed prices, says an analyst, according to a report from Canada's The Western Producer.

    What is important is South America economically cripple agriculture in North America.
    With these people there is no partnership. They are our enemies. All South American should know that.

    We will continue with what we are already doing:

    - increase crop yields;
    - improve the infra structure for transportation of production.

    Recalling that Brazil is one of the only countries in the world with agricultural land available and drinking water in huge quantity.

    Our little insane mad genius Brasshole is right on track to see the evil capitalists suffer as they will be unable to bring back high profitable revenues for Brazil and Argentina. Latin America is right on track to experience a strong recession that will principally affect the lower middle class and the poor.

    Countries such as Columbia, Peru, Uruguay, Paraguay, Chile and Panama will successfully weather the downturn with some moderate suffering, but Venezuela, Argentina and Brazil will be hammered hard.

    - increase crop yields;

    The price is already falling and you have no chance of competing with much more efficient N. American producers. This must be a French inspired agricultural model.

    - improve the infra structure for transportation of production.

    Why, who are you going to send it too?

    “What is important is South America economically cripple agriculture in North America.”

    Now Brasshole have you forgotten your previous posts, or are you just a hypocrite or maybe you have so many drivers in Brasshole's asshole, they are clueless to what was previously posted?.....right Tobi?

    Check out the stats Tobi, the only thing happening is that SA is quickly becoming a agrarian economy to supply your new masters in Asia. Keep up the good work serf boi.

    The US agriculture breathes because it receives billions and billions in subsidies hyper super indebted USA.

    Brazilian agribusiness has the world's lowest production costs and is also the most competitive, even with the jettisoned Brazil of the great world trade routes

    @7 Brasileiro
    So they are subsidised “billions and billions” and are insulated from market forces almost whatever happens.

    And your cunning plan is to keep driving down the price, until what, even your “competitive” producers, can’t compete anymore.

    What is the Brazilian equivalent of a Sipayo?

    Brazil, slowly destroying the rainforests, Argentina have already destroyed the Pampas growing tasteless beans :-( Brasshole, gradually destroying the reputation of Brazil and Argentina. (Reputation, what reputation!)

    Now being a bit of an hard-headed bastard when it comes to finances, I can see how more dollars spent on seeding and encouraging greater yields by the use of new techniques could be successful but there is one question that bothers me.

    If the fields have already been sown HOW does spending more dollars increase hectares under the plough in time to meet this year's harvest except Brazil that kicks off ploughing in November?

    Anybody (except Brasso) have an answer to that one?

    I have no problems with increasing yields and planting more hectares, but the free market and trade agreements in the end will determine profitability. (Being a Mercosur member, Brazil goods have to pay a higher tarrif in order to be sold to Europe...)

    The surprizing statistics are that only corn production is subsidized in the USA with an elaborate ethanol tax incentive, other grains and soy are not. What is amazing is that Canadian and USA are MORE efficient than Brazilian and Argentinian growers. They also do not pay ridiculous taxes and their transportation costs are FAR below that of South America.
    Labor costs are minimal as most is highly mechanized.

    In an extremely dry year like the harvest 2013/2014 the United States could only equalize to Brazil its average productivity per hectare. And yet because we have several areas of expansion that still maintains a low productivity but on the rise.

    In other words, the United States are light years of delay with respect to Brazil. About Canada, in respect, I will not even comment.

    Envy kills!

    Sorry to demonstrate your pathetic ignorance, but Brazil is a small player in the production of wheat. Brazil sufferers similar weather difficulties as the rest of the world.

    And do you come talk to me about wheat? The climate in Brazil is not conducive to planting wheat. It's like you want to compare our production of mangas and jacas with USA.

    Do not be silly, Chilíndio!

    There a vast tracts of wheat fields in Brazil. Brazil out produces the USA in coffee, juice oranges, sugarcane and idiots like yourself.

    Chilíndio and yet we produce half of our domestic consumption of wheat. From 2016 we buy the other half of Argentina.

    I really do not believe that brasshole's stupidity, of which is on constant and consistent display is natural. That is either strived for or a test tube creation.
